Gboard Adds Voice Typing - A Huge Missing Feature

When Gboard, Google's iOS keyboard, launched, I was really excited and switched to it. Overall the keyboard is way better than the built in iOS keyboard. But it was missing one big feature, voice typing. So sometimes, I went back to the iOS keyboard to do voice typing. But now you do not need to switch back to the old keyboard, you can use Gboard to do voice typing.

It is a little weird, because you need to long press on the space bar and then it opens a new window and you speak and then it goes back into the keyboard but it works and works well.

Here is a GIF of it in action:

Gboard also added 15 new languages, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, Greek, Polish, Romanian, Swedish, Catalan, Hungarian, Malay, Russian, Latin American Spanish and Turkish. They added Doodles and now support all the iOS 10 emojis.

Nice upgrade Google!
